If you pass the pond and think nothing is happening – well it is. The council’s partners The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust have been trying to secure further funding to return and help restore the pond, this funding has now been agreed, so we hope to meet soon to discuss the issues.
I met with representatives from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to discuss the provision of a sink, pipework and an interceptor tank to take water from Market Hill down Ivy Lane and into the pond, unfortunately the costings are coming back as between £8,500 and £10,000 for this work!
So what’s next? Well, with the help of the Wildlife Trust we may submit a grant application if possible to secure funding .
Or is there some individual or company out there with money to spare ???
